Interesting Review of Top Gun

A really interesting take on Top Gun in Caleb Crain’s Weblog.

Why is this movie, a pretty bad one from almost every perspective, so bloody popular? Heck, I love watching it. What’s up with that? What I never understood is why Kenny Loggins was so popular? His voice is so popcorn-pop sounding. He sounds like a souped up Dan Fogelberg; an effeminate man who was accidently given electric guitars and a drum track when he should have been given an acoustic guitar and soft lighting.

Ah well… now I’m going to have to rent it and see it again. It’s been years since I had my fix of cool planes doing things. And, hey, it’s always fun to see Anthony Edwards with actual hair on his head…
